Why fans didn't like him? He was too positive and stood by his word to never coach through the media.

A lot of fans want a coach who will step into a press conference and say what they(the fans) are thinking - the players suck, so-and-so can't play defense, etc. Even Eakins is getting nailed with fan complaints that he isn't throwing the team under the bus after every loss.

People will always complain about the coach though. There are fans in Detroit who want Babcock fired, and I even remember fire Quenneville threads in years the Hawks won cups.

Unfortunately, most of the complaints about Eakins can be attributed to the fact that he is a terrible coach whose systems and inability have directly contributed to the team tanking the season before the first month was over. There really is no doubt now approaching the half way point of the season, Eakins is a significant downgrade in coaching ability to Kreuger with far inferior results, which is just sad considering he has a better roster to work with compared to the **** Kreuger got by with last year.
